RI campaigns fret about signs in 'Frankenstorm'
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Rhode Island politicians are reviewing their campaign plans and asking supporters to take down signs as a storm termed the ‘‘Frankenstorm’’ by forecasters threatens to whack the East Coast.
Republican congressional candidate Brendan Doherty on Friday asked supporters to remove thousands of yard signs so they don’t turn into projectiles in high winds. Doherty campaign workers plan to start taking down about 30 large signs Saturday morning. His campaign said Doherty had planned to spend the weekend doing in-person, retail politics, but said Sunday plans might have to change because of the weather.
Democratic Rep. David Cicilline’s (sis-ihl-EE'-neez) campaign said it’s hard to say what their plans are this weekend and next week, but the storm takes top priority.
